Secession - Dividing The States

It is Wertheimer’s notable masterpiece in which he gives a wake-up call to the urgent need for a reckoning in America. He offers a compelling analysis of America’s potential divisions based on the persistent issues the country has been facing for decades. He pointed out the rapid historical and contemporary changes that present major challenges to a country already facing polarization. He mentioned revolting groups that have been contributing to driving a wedge between communities, and the possibility of them gaining prominence is becoming increasingly alarming. He also brought readers’ attention toward the divisive red versus blue states issue that potentially requires a reckoning in the near future. In addition to these discordances, he called readers’ attention toward America’s 250-year-old Constitution, which is also questionable, putting the survival of a democratic country at stake.

Reading this literary marvel will help readers undertake a transformative exploration of America’s enduring dilemmas that demand their attention and contemplation.
